Earlier this year, Bandai released a collaboration with Disney. A Voltron like mecha featuring smaller robots shaped in the forms of popular iconic Disney characters Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Pluto, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, and Goofy. Each character transforms into a piece of a bigger robot resembling a Voltron or Megazord from the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.
I was lucky enough to snag up one of these limited run pieces from Insomnia Video Game Culture. As you can see in the slideshow, each individual piece is as impressive as the completed combined robot. The mostly die-cast metal robots give each piece a really nice heavy feel, like old generation 1 Transformers. There are even little details that stand out. Each piece has a slider on the back of their heads to switch the view on their eye shield. As individual pieces you can have it show their eyes, or you can shift it to show a mini version of each character controlling their part of the giant mecha.
